A man was arrested on Tuesday in connection to a burglary investigation, according to a City of Cortland Police report.

The report states that city police responded to a burglary investigation at a residence on Hill Street back on June 1 of this year. A maintenance person was working at the property when he came across unidentified individuals in the residence.

According to the report, the residence had been “ransacked” and all the interior doors had been “broken into.” 

One of the individuals “fought” with the maintenance person while “he tried to hold the door shut on him,” the report notes. The individual managed to escape from the residence.

Through an investigation, it was discovered that Todd M. Brady, 32 of Greenbush Street, was the individual who fought with the maintenance person and ran from the residence.

Brady was arrested on a warrant on Tuesday. He was charged with second-degree burglary (a Class-C Felony) and third-degree criminal mischief (a Class-E Felony).

Brady was arraigned and is currently being held at Cortland County Jail for unrelated charges. He is scheduled to appear in city court at a later date.
